I'm trying to workgroup my mom's laptop and my desktop in order to share a printer connected to my desktop. My desktop is wired directly to the router and the laptop is wireless. I clicked set up home or small office network on mydesktop and named it MSHOME and then did the same for my mom's laptop. When I try to access the workgroup on both computers it gives me the same error. " You cannot access the workgroup at this time, you may not have sufficient permission or one of the other systems may be turned off. Contact the system administrator for details." I then tryed redoing the network setup process on both computers and named the workgroup MSHOME2 and I was able to access the workgroup but not access my desktop from the laptop or the laptop from my desktop and could not access either even thought I could see them in the workgroup. I also enabled NETBIOS tc/ip like another tut told me to do but no cigar.. I was wondering if anyone knows anything else I can try, because I know I got this to work at my dads house ( parents divorced ) with the same setup but I dont remember how.
Thanks in advanced for any responses.
